Umno followed ROS procedure over no-contest decision, says Zahid

BAGAN DATUK: Umno hopes the Registrar of Societies (ROS) will accept the decisions made at the party's general assembly 2022, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic).

The Umno president said they had followed all the rules and processes on the voting process during the recent assembly.

“Under the Societies Act 1996, ROS must be notified of any motion filed by a registered party.

“In my opinion, it is not to get ROS approval but rather to inform it. We have followed procedure,” he told reporters after visiting the construction site of the Bagan Datuk bridge here on Monday (Jan 23).

It was reported on Saturday (Jan 21) that Kuala Nerus division member Muhammad Aizat Fikri and Seremban Umno member Muhammad Fiqri Firdaus Muhammad Rom had claimed that the party violated its constitution at the general assembly.

However, Seremban division chief Mustafa Salim denied that the division had sent a notice of objection to ROS over the issue.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Bagan Datuk MP, added that the party welcomed any complaints lodged with ROS.

“We leave it to ROS to accept the decision made during our general assembly.

“(As for) any ... speculation by those who are not satisfied, perhaps ROS can clear things up.

“What’s important is the decision made shows the spirit of unity in the party and the spirit will continue in the upcoming branch/division elections,” he said.

At the assembly earlier this month, it was decided that there would be no contest for the party presidency and deputy presidency in the coming party polls which must be held before May 19.
